Does anyone remember it?
Now there are some red dot sights that were always made for frame mount and not slide ride. The Leica Tempus or the Noblex C Sight for examples. Presumably great sights from high-end brand names. But you could kill them on a slide because they were not made for that. I also suppose there's sub-$200 junk that will work for plinking but die after a couple thousand rounds.
This was it! Thanks.
Hopefully they all fare better these days.
Much depends on the use. I tried a cheap red dot on a SIG522 and it was generally okay but the zero changed over time. I put that on a 12 gauge shotgun for one sighting-in session and that put paid to it. The glass was loose in the window and when I put it back on the SIG522 I got two distinct groups, depending how the glass was situated at the time.
However...I've not had that issue with either of my Burris Fast Fire IIIs. They've been on several .22s, on my shotgun and back on the .22 again with no problem so far. The glass hasn't moved and I don't get a wandering zero.
